The Daly Mansion is always the backdrop for the Bitterroot Community Band's only fundraising concert of the year.

This year is no exception, with the July 24 Thursday evening concert starting at 7 p.m. There's an added treat at the intermission - strawberry shortcake served up by volunteers. Money raised by the concert and the treats helps the band pay for music and other expenses. Come early with your lawn chairs, blankets and picnics and enjoy the whole evening at the Daly Mansion.

The musical event is considered the unofficial start of Daly Days weekend in Hamilton Friday and Saturday, July 25 and 26.

The Bitterroot Community Band will be performing next at the bandshell at Claudia Driscoll Park August 7 and then will be featured at the Tuesday at 12 concert series August 12.
